    A number of social media users warned Cardi that moving to Nigeria may not be a very good idea, citing the lack of electricity there as one of the reasons.

    Mounting tensions between the United States and Iran that were recently stoked by a US strike that claimed the life of Iranian general Qasem Soleimani, have apparently sent ripples across social media as well, with American rap artist Cardi B joining the chorus of netizens voicing their concerns over the latest alarming developments.

    In her 3 January tweet, the rap star described Trump’s actions as his “dumbest move” to date, promptly adding that she is now filing for her Nigerian citizenship.

    While it wasn’t immediately clear at the time exactly how serious the celebrity was, her message did attract the attention of Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Chairman of the Nigerian Diaspora Commission, who tweeted in response that Cardi would be welcome in the African country.

    ​Many netizens looked amused by the rapper’s proclamation, wondering aloud whether she’s aware of how scarce electricity in Nigeria is.

    ​Some also joked about how Cardi’s move might impact the apparent rivalry between Nigeria and Ghana.

    And there were also those who didn’t seem to think that moving to Nigeria is such a good idea.

    Earlier, former porn star Mia Khalifa revealed her own take on the current volatile state of affairs in the Middle East, though it did not involve moving to Africa.
